Street Style Diaries Barcelona - Maria Carvajal

Friday, 27 March 2015

Maria Carvajal caught our eyes for her SIMPLICITY. Her minimalistic retro style, reminiscent of the 60's is a fine example of modern urban sophistication. She embodies the understated refined elegance of Jacky Kennedy and the quirkiness of Twiggy, both iconic for their style and time.
We love how the nude pale shades compliment her and leave her countenance glowing, cutting a striking portrait.,Maria Carvajal
Maria wears a color block top in pale skin tone and midnight blue and a pair of cut-off pleated pants, both from COS. She wears platform wedge sandals from ZARA and very cool transparent round acetate retro dark shade from TOSCANA(they do some amazing check them out!),Maria Carvajal
Maria is an online marketing professional and live and works in Barcelona. Nothing says spring better than a breezy ride through a bike friendly city like Barcelona, specially if you have one like Maria!,Maria Carvajal
Her amazing city ride is as cool and retro in style as her and a definite head turner. In mint green, chrome wood and leather, this compact machine would be such a pleasure to ride on....don't you think!,Maria Carvajal

Street Style Diaries Barcelona - Alexandre Becker

Monday, 23 March 2015

Dressed for summer and groomed for the moment, he looked like a fashion model/ someone definitely in a creative profession,  probably British, making the most of his rare day off in this fabulous Spanish city. Well that was our first impression of Alexandre Becker, he is not a professional model (can't figure why not...) and is not a Brit. A few questions about his whereabouts made us hungry!......, Alexandre Becker
Imagine if the chef manages to put his clothes and appearance together like this on a regular day, how gorgeous to the eyes and divine to taste would be the dishes he plates! Alexandre is a Chef de Cuisine and and lives and works in  Brazil, another paradise of surf and skate, sun & sand and Joie de Vivre!, Alexandre Becker
Alexandre sports the ever trendy undercut hair style that refuses to fade away, with a full groomed-to- perfection Mo-beard. He loves his tattoos and going by the few but intricate artworks he is inked with, looks like he chooses them well and after much consideration. We absolutely love his vintage steel watch., Alexandre Becker
Alexandre wears a plain white short sleeves T with sleeves rolled up with a pair of cut above the knee, city shorts in black. A red and black tartan shirt tied around the waist is a fine statement in street style and prepares him if he feels like shirting-up. Cool square green tinted Ray-bans and a leather backpack in black, with a black pea-cap hooked to it and a long key pendant chain are his ingredients for garnish! He chooses a Hi-top all white sneakers for footwear, that's been on our Menswear must haves list...go get them., Alexandre Becker

Street Style Diaries Barcelona -Daniella, Lal Mirch, Xavi

Monday, 16 March 2015

Barcelona has very vibrant mix of subcultures and its a delight to visit for its openness and rich city vibe and of course great shopping!. This capital of Catalunya has been an important places where the punk subculture emerged as a rebellion against the oppression around 1978 during the Franquismo. This Spanish subculture thrives and is well conserved with its own distinct identity by the youth of today. We met a group of three friends Xavi, Daniela and Lal Mirch who represent this unique subculture in a very Catalan way.
Xavi, Xavi

Xavi wears a message T in black paired with a pair of torn denims folded up. He wears a pair of 14 eye Doc Marten boots in black with white laces. The punctured earlobes, piercings, punk and coloured hair and chunky chains are his accessories of choice.
Lal Mirch, Lal Mirch

Lal Mirch (her name in Hindi means Red Chilly!!), wears a sleeveless message T with a pair of cloudy washed pair of denims in black. Her choice of footwear is also a pair of Doc Martens in Black but with a twist of red and black laces in either foot. Punk hair with skinned head, punctured lobes, piercings, metal spiked neck and wrist bands, hip chains with a padlock and a backpack in black are the accessories of choice for this bespectacled beauty.
Daniella, Daniella

Daniella gives us a pretty punk version with her cat-eye make-up. She wears a Catalan flag T with sleeves rolled up with a pair of skinnies in blue denim, a pair of red plimsolls and a leather backpack in brown. Like her friends punctured earlobes, undercut hair style with a coloured crop on sideways and piercings complete her look.,Daniella, Lal Mirch, Xavi

The three amigos paint a pretty picture of this very identifiable Barcelona youth culture and life. We wonder how similar yet how different they are together!

Street Style Diaries - Nidhi Jacob

Monday, 2 March 2015

Nidhi Jacob has a distinct style, a style that's minimal, high-on-comfort and ease, drawing from vintage and tradition, blending a ZEN like calm and veering towards unisex, its this distinct identity that sees this fashion editor of ELLE go about her duties.
Nidhi Jacob, Nidhi Jacob
Nidhi wears this blue-on-blue color blocked long tunic (kurta) in cotton and pairs it up with a divided skirt in black, just about grazing her mid-calf. A structured sling bag in white leather and seemingly super comfortable slip on shoes in black & white completes her look. A short crop for hair and a sans make-up Nidhi manages to make heads turn with an almost boyish/ girlish charm!
Nidhi Jacob, Nidhi Jacob
We are impressed by how the use of unconventional cut-n-sew color blocking and a innovative play with proportions speak out a completely new language that's difficult to pin down and categorize or slot, something that we all love to do.
